History

The village was founded in October 1933, during Sukkot, by immigrants from Russia, Lithuania and Latvia, on Jewish National Fund land, under the auspices of Keren HaYesod. Its name comes from the farm in the Crimea in which the founders trained, called Mishmar (lit. guard shifts). Notable former residents include the musicians Shalom Hanoch and Meir Ariel.

Before the founding of the State of Israel, Mishmarot was home to secret Fosh and Military Industries bases.
